A solgeran can have a difficult time finding a place in the world. Ruthor Trendal lives in a time when firearms are still very early and mysterious devices, and has taken advantage of this by learning to craft them himself. Even this is a risky career with very little marketability as of yet, but he's willing to do anything it takes to keep his two children happy and well. It's not uncommon for him to leave home for days or weeks for business and gathering rare supplies. The roads can be dangerous for both traders of rare items and for solgerans in general, so Ruthor travels prepared by default for trouble. As long as he can improve life for his children, anything is worth the risk.
